6 Weeks Postpartum

Ok so I'm a few days away, but I had my checkup yesterday. All is well. I've been cleared to workout...starting slowly. And my doctor wants to see how I do off of blood pressure meds since my pressure has been really good. I hope this child of mine doesn't drive it up. OH MY GOSH! People say I'm the most prepared person they know. You cannot prepare for this!! She is the sweetest baby ever...when she's asleep. She's spoiled rotten and that's my fault.

Just Checking In!

Hi Guys and Gals! I just wanted to check in with you really quickly! Being a single mommy is difficult! But it is very rewarding. Watching my little bean grow every day is the most precious thing! She is doing terrific and the doctors are pleased with her progress. At her last appointment she was up to 5 pound and 6 ounces! She gets juicier by the day! I'll be back with a post soon...still trying to get a hang of this mommy thing! Blessings to you all! RoJo
